Peter Dinklage, known for his memorable role in the “Game of Thrones” phenomenon series, commented on the upcoming production of the well-known “Snow White” story that Disney is planning soon.
Disney has announced, relatively recently, that it will bring to the fore the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in a new screenplay. Moreover, the company wanted to mention that the new production will comply, as much as possible, with the rules of “politically correctness”, the one agreed as standard, nowadays. As proof, the giant wants the role of Snow White to be played by Rachel Zegler (known to the audience in “West Side Story”), which would take the character away from his original origins, extremely “white”. In addition, the role of stepmother could be played by Gal Gadot.
What does Peter Dinklage think of the new Snow White production?
Invited to the “WTF with Marc Maron” podcast, Peter Dinklage commented on the new standards that Disney will apply to “Snow White.” Although he has nothing against the fact that Snow White will be played by an actress who does not correspond to the original version, the actor mentioned that the giant seems to practice the double standard, when it comes to politically correctness.
“I don’t want to offend anyone, but I was a little surprised when they announced (no Disney) that they want to star in Snow White as a South American actress. However, you tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. What happens here? To me, this whole thing doesn’t make sense. You claim to be progressive in a certain direction, but you are still telling the story of the seven dwarfs who live in a cave. What the hell? All my love and respect for the lead actress, but also for all the people in the production who think that what they do is good, but what are we doing here? ”Said Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage. in the aforementioned podcast.
